Given they top the results spot, (at least for me in NZ), they're doing okay for free I think. And they're not doing too bad for "x internet" either, being in sixth spot - one ahead of something called the "Internet Explorer Home Page". (:

No - can't see it. Even if I go to www.google.com, the results URL is www.google.co.nz.etc... -- Carl Read

Okay - that worked. More uses than just making you anonymous. I wonder how/if those with .com addresses can simulate coming from nz? -- Carl Read
